Ai-Ai delas Alas on her no-sex-until-marriage vow with fiancé Gerald Sibayan: "Kaya nagustuhan ko rin si Gerald, kaya umoo rin ako na mapangasawa siya, kasi nung nagkaroon ako ng Papal Award, nag-celibate na ako, e. Wala na kaming sexual something something. So, siya, pumapayag siya."

 


For the first time, Ai-Ai delas Alas revealed that she and fiancé Gerald Sibayan are planning to have two weddings.

“Ayan, ire-reveal ko na tuloy... ang daldal-daldal ko!

"Pero sa November, pupunta ako ng America, magpapakasal kami dun," said Ai-Ai during her PEPtalk shoot today, April 21.

But the Comedy Queen clarified that her dream church wedding will still happen in 2018 here in the Philippines.

She continued, “Meron pa rin dito. Meron lang nag-sponsor sa amin doon sa U.S.

“Yung iba ko kasing friends, hindi makakauwi dito sa 2018. So, dun na lang nila ginawa.”

It was on April 12, 2017—the day they were celebrating their third anniversary—when Gerald proposed to Ai-Ai.

NO-SEX-UNTIL-MARRIAGE VOW. Speaking to the editorial team of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Ai-Ai also admitted her celibacy vow.

Apart from Gerald being her "answered prayer," Ai-Ai was proud of the fact that Gerald respects her beliefs. 

“Kaya nagustuhan ko rin si Gerald, kaya umoo rin ako na mapangasawa siya, kasi nung nagkaroon ako ng Papal Award, nag-celibate na ako, e.

“Wala na kaming sexual something something. So, siya, pumapayag siya.” 

Ai-Ai was referring to the Cross Pro Ecclesia Et Pontifice (Cross for the Church and Pontiff) that was given to her by the Roman Catholic Church back in October 2016. It is the highest Papal Award bestowed upon lay people who have given service to the church.

She further explained, “Mahirap gawin yun ng isang lalaki na papayag ka, kasi yun ang dahilan.

“Kumbaga, religiously, yun ang dahilan ko, na ayoko, and pumapayag siya [na mag-vow of chastity until marriage].

“Sabi ko, ‘Bakit hindi ka namimilit ngayon?’

"Sabi niya, 'Kasi nakokonsensiya ako. Nung nag-Papal Award ka, siguro bliness rin ako na nawala yung pangungulit ko.'"

As they begin their journey to marriage, Ai-Ai said that she feels at peace knowing that Gerald is the right man for her.

“Kasi wala namang nega sa part ng family ko at friends ko.

"Lahat gusto siya. Lahat nababaitan sa kanya."

NO PROBLEM WITH AGE GAP. At one point, PEP asked if she still gets affected by other people’s opinion about their 29-year age gap.

The Our Mighty Yaya star answered, “Una, sa buhay naman ng tao, hindi lahat ng tao natutuwa sa ‘yo.

“Pangalawa, uso na ngayon ang mga basher. Nung araw, wala naman.

"Nagkaroon sila ng pagkakataong magsalita ng mga bagay na gusto nila, na hindi nila naiisip na nakakasakit minsan.

“Pero wala tayong magagawa. Nandiyan na, nangyari na. Sa social media, masyadong open.”

After all, Ai-Ai said, neither age nor social status can determine the success rate of a marriage.

She elaborated, “Kasi lahat ng batch ko na nag-asawa na, siyempre sa edad ko, lahat ‘yan hiwalay na, e.

"Hindi mo masasabi na, ‘Talaga? Bakit kayo naghiwalay?’ May mga dahilan."

Talking about her relationship with Gerald, Ai-Ai added, “So ako, prayers na lang na balang-araw, hindi mangyari na maghiwalay kami.

"Na maging isang maganda kaming example, na hindi balakid ang age para maging masaya kayo at para maging buo ang pamilya mo.”
